Last time we saw Master Chief (Apart from the easter eggs in Halo Reach) was at the end of Halo 3, the secret ending that you had to complete the game on the Legendary difficulty to see. It showed Master Chief on the Forward Unto Dawn frigate, just after witnessing the Arbiter make it safely back to Earth, it appeared as though Master Chief had died, as the other half of the Forward Unto Dawn had been completely ripped away. After the credits if you played the game on Legendary, you see Master Chief climb into a cryochamber, he asks Cortana to tell him if she needed help, and then he closes the chamber and the game ends there.
But it appears that whole cryochamber thing is actually going somewhere, Halo 4 is the next installment to the Halo franchise, unfortunately this Halo game will be produced by 343 Industries just like Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, we’ll find out if this is actually a good thing once the games come out, at this stage though many are incredibly skeptical.
Halo 4 will be coming out by the end of 2012 . . . maybe this is what the end of the world prophecy means . . . but because Halo 4 is coming out at this time it’s most likely that will not be coming out on the Xbox 360, by then the next Xbox console would have come out, and what a game to ship with the all new hardware. The bonus with this is, the graphics may actually be pretty intense, but the problem is, it’s going to take forever before we get to play it . . .
Now there’s a lot that’s unknown about Halo 4, as 343 Industries only gave us this short film clip . . . a teaser . . . dammit
There’s heaps going on in the few seconds of footage, we see that Cortana is waking John (Master Chief) up, and we also see that out of nowhere Master Chief has obtained a jetpack, he’s been in a cryochamber for crying out lout, where on earth did he get it from? We can also see that he must have been in there for a considerable amount of time, as there is snow building up beneath the other chambers.
We then see at the end, that the Master Chief is heading towards a large vessel, most likely a Covenant ship of some sort, and we can all but assume that this Covenant ship isn’t filled with the lovely, friendly Elites we all met in Halo 3 . . .
From now til 2012, 343 Industries will no doubt let out more teasers, secrets and images. Until these teasers come out we can expect that the game play will be similar to Halo Reach, and the graphics will completely kick a____
Here’s some of the images we’ve been able to get our hands on so far of Halo 4.Nothing there
By the way, you will notice that I haven’t categorised the Halo 4 and the Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary post under “Xbox 360”, this is because these games may not come out on the Xbox 360, at this point I’m almost certain Halo 4 will come out on the next Xbox console, as of the Halo Combat Evolved remake it will most likely be an Xbox 360 release, but at this point I’ll leave it…
